The original Warwick Vase is of ancient Roman origin and of Bacchic inspiration and was discovered in fragments at Hadrian’s Villa, Tivoli around 1771 by Gavin Hamilton. Restored by Grandjacquet to Piranesi’s designs for Sir William Hamilton, the legendary antiquarian, it passed to his nephew George Greville, second Earl of Warwick. Due to its monumental proportions the latter created a special garden summer house to preserve it in the grounds of Warwick Castle. At the time it caused a sensation and was much visited and admired. Sold in 1978 it now resides in Glasgow as part of the Burrell Collection.
